Not Convinced!!!

    I think this is an amazing image, but I am really not sure how to classify it. I went for the Dust one, but then on second thoughts, I was wondering if the two bright stars may have an effect on the way it looks. Then again, initially I went for the side on cigar shaped, but the more I am looking at it I am wondering if it has arms with a bulge in the middle. Oh dear, my head hurts again!!!!

    It has features, so you should not be getting into shape classification. It has pointy ends, so it is nearly an edge-on spiral. so yes, it would have arms and a small bulge. The two bright stars in the foreground should not affect the image.
